    Used to watch that show on whatever comedy channel it was that eventually became Comedy Central. "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians" was a holiday favorite when I was growing up.

    I'd like to check in on the show, but my internet connection sucks donkey nuts today.

    Pretty cool. I have a few on my Netflix Instant Queue, but I might check out the marathon as well.

    I just watched Soultaker recently. I had no idea that Joe Estevez existed. Unfortunately, I now do. :nocheer:

    They were on locally around here for a few years before the move to Comedy Central. Then they would also show them after SNL in the mid-90s

    Rifftrax Live is doing Santa Claus Conquers the Martians in theaters this Thursday night. I know the MST3K version so well after all these years that I can't imagine it being riffed any other way (but I'm still going).

    I love that MST3K and its spinoffs continue to find audiences these days. It was like Beatlemania the first time I saw a live Cinematic Titanic show back in 2009. People were walking around in a daze from seeing and meeting Joel.

    They had a pretty steady 12,000-13,000 viewer count watching the Youtube stream throughout the marathon yesterday. Not bad at all considering it was a holiday and the show being off the air for 14 years.
